Summary

The new EU plant health regime focuses on preventing the introduction of new pests into the Union via imports from third countries. Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/2072 is a critical element of the new regime. Annexes to this Regulation (which are regularly updated) list the Union quarantine pests, protected zone quarantine pests, and Union regulated non-quarantine pests, as well as specifying additional measures that must be applied to certain plants, plant products and other objects before they can be imported into the EU.
